The climate is changing, putting a range of natural and human systems at risk and prompting communities, governments, and organizations to step up their efforts to adapt. The learning curve can be steep, but certainly manageable given the wealth of methods and information to support adaptation planning. The goal is to manage current and future negative outcomes and capitalize on opportunities that may present themselves under a changing climate.
Training in Climate Resiliency
Climate adaptation capacity-building in Canada requires innovative approaches through education, training and networks (e.g., communities of practice, innovation accelerators, etc.) in order to produce and sustain skilled workers and support the emergence of new approaches and actions. Labour-focused jobs must also be an important element for upskilling and reskilling considerations, offered through college and polytechnic programming. With the right investments, Canadian workers-of-the-future will have the capability to learn, adapt to change, manage the physical, financial and social risks associated with the changing climate, and build resilience in their organizations and communities through tailored strategies and actions designed for specific local contexts.
